David, you are right. I'd been fed up and tired.

I am willing to quit the job of the editor of newsletter. I won't post
to announce@ any more, except the release news of XX.

I hope someone will take over that fantastic task. If
noone will raise the hand, the newsletter will be choked and dead.
The document for handing over that task can be found at

Thank you for reading and sorry for posting FAT mails twice
to announce@, before.
